    Unable to turn on Instant Web Publishing

      Unable to turn on Instant Web Publishing

      Post

      When I select File->Sharing->Instant Web Publishing, some odd behavior occurs:

       

      - I am unable to select the Status Area Language drop down box (it is grayed out)

      - Selecting the Instant Web Publishing "On" radio button and then clicking OK crashes filemaker. Making any changes to the Advanced Options also crashes FM. 

       

      System:

      FM Pro Advanced 10.0v1

      Mac os x 10.4.11 

      Using port 81  

       

      I hope this is enough information to get a conversation going. If not, kindly let me know.

          Thank you for your post.

           

          The Status Area Language will not display a language until Instant Web Publishing is turned on.

           

          I don't have a Mac OS X 10.4.x machine; only 10.5.6 machine, so I cannot duplicate your problem exactly.

           

          Change the port to 591.  This is the port registered and reserved for FileMaker Pro.  See if you are able to now turn on Instant Web Publishing.

           

          If you are still crashing, shut down your machine and restart.  Do not open any other applications (I do not want any possible conflict).  Then, open a file in FileMaker Pro Advanced 10, and try to turn on Instant Web Publishing.

           

          If you are still crashing, then remove the preference file for FileMaker Pro.  They can be found at:

           

          Home -> Library -> Preferences -> com.filemaker.pro.advanced.plist

           

          When FileMaker Pro Advanced launches, it looks for this Preference file and reads it.  If none is found, then a new one is created.  Once removed, try launching FileMaker Pro again and turn on Instant Web Publishing.

           

          If you are still encountering problems, let me know.

            Hi!  I'm having this same problem.  I tried all of the steps you suggested, but to no avail.  Any other advice?

              I would definitely start with updating to 10.0v3, it does fix a couple of (non-crashing) IWP bugs.
